As the days starts to shift towards the colder, drizzly sort, I’m this year determined to keep my sartorial spirits up by injecting a splash of colour and flush of texture into my winter capsule wardrobe.
With this in mind, there was really only one group I could look towards for chic, playful, vibrant winter styling inspiration, and that has to be the Scandi set.
The birthplace of womenswear brands Ganni, Stine Goya and Cecilie Bahnsen—all playful, eclectic and oh-so-Scandi in their own right, the Scandi fashion crowd is brimming with uplifting styling inspiration.
Championing the Scandinavian’s knack for combining the classic with the quirky, I’ve noticed that this manifests in fabulous tailoring, splashed of colour and a knack for layering. With that in mind, I’m looking out for chic knits, boxy cuts, and playful details that can elevate my look, but also feel timeless enough to last next winter, and the next… And unsurprisingly, a Swedish high-street stalwart, H&M has plenty of this ground covered. Channeling Scandi spirit, read on to shop my edit of the H&M buys I think some of the region’s chicest shoppers would notice first.
